THERE IS NO CHANNELS PROGRAMMED IN THE SCANNER. TAKE IT BACK TO WHERE YOU PURCHACED THE SCANNER AND HAVE IT RECLONED.

Simple, some Radio Shack models respond to their preset lock out override control protocol. Try holding the lock out button and the scanner should override the lock out on the banks. If that doesn't work, you may need to un-lock them one by one, which may be time consuming. Or, you could reprogram the scanner all together.

Hope this helps!

I have the BC370CRS SCANNER I am trying to clear all the memory and reset it. It is telling me to hold down 2, 9, and hold and turn it on. That is not working. Can you please tell me another way to do...


Locking/Unlocking Banks When you are scanning conventional banks, the scanner displays the digit corresponding to all unlocked banks. To lock out a bank so that the scanner does not scan its channels, press the letter that corresponds to the bank. The bank's letter disappears from the display. To unlock locked-out banks, simply press that bank's letter again. The bank's letter appears on the display and the scanner includes that bank when scanning. Note: You cannot lock out all banks. One bank must be unlocked at all times. Locking/Unlocking Channels To lock out a channel so that the scanner does not stop on it while scanning, press L/O when the scanner is stopped on that channel, or manually select the channel and press L/O. To unlock the channel, manually select it and press L/O again. Restoring All Locked Out Channels You can restore all locked-out channels in a bank only when the bank is selected for scan. Follow these steps to restore all locked-out channels in a bank. 1. If you de-selected the bank, press SCAN then press the bank's letter. 2. Press MANUAL. 3. Hold down L/O for about 2 seconds. The scanner beeps twice and unlocks all To delete a stored frequency, press 0 then press E. Channels with no frequencies are automatically locked out hope this helps

How do u unlock channels


hello You can unlock all locked out channels in any bank at one time. To do this, first press a bank key to start scanning. Then press [HOLD] to stop scanning. Press and hold down [L/O] ("L/O" appears on the screen) for more than 2.5 seconds until you hear the multi-beep ("L/O" disappears). Now all locked out channels in the bank are unlocked and restored for scanning hope this helps you cheers

How do I cleear locked out channels when I cant find them


To review locked out channels and clear them if desired:
- Press MAN
- Repeatedly press FUNC and L/OUT
- Each time you press FUNC and L/OUT the scanner will advance to the next locked out channel.

To review locked out channels in SEARCH banks:
- Press SRCH
- Select the bank to review
- Press FUNC then L/OUT
- Use the up and down arrows to review the locked out frequencies

To clear the locked out frequencies in a bank:
- Press SRCH
- Select the bank that you wish to clear
- Press FUNC then L/OUT
- Press FUNC then 6
- Select from the options presented

Unfortunately the PRO-2096 does not have a global clear function like many scanners have.

Pro-96 Scanner: My pro 96 scanner says all channels locked and it ...


If there is no frequencies on your scanner it will lock all channels out. if all your frequencies are on one bank and you accidentally hit that bank number and turn it off it will lock out all channels. If that's the case just hit that bank no. back on and they will unlock.

Pro-96 ,channels 1 thru 9 are locked out ,only 0 is


You are referring to banks, not channels. When bank 0 is active, then you push 0 to de-activate it, you have now removed all your banks from the scan list. To re-activate any bank, just press any number. This is confusing because locking out a channel and removing a bank from the scan list are two very different operations but use the same terminology.

All channels locked out pro-2055


I hope this will help. It shows locking and unlocking ids while scanning and while in a bank.


Locking/Unlocking IDs Contents You can lock out IDs you don't want to hear such as telemetry, MDT's, dog catcher, etc. To Lock out an ID while scanning, quickly press L/OUT while the ID is displayed. To Lock or Unlock an ID manually: 1. In Manual mode select any channel of the bank you want to lock or unlock an ID in by entering the bank number and channel number (Ex: 001) then press MAN to advance to the channel. 2. Press PGM then TRUNK to put the scanner in program and trunk modes. You will see the bank number (0-9), list number (0-4), and the list status (ON or OFF) on the 1st line, the ID# in the list (0-29) on the 2nd line, the ID on the 3rd line, and bank tag on the 4th line (if programmed). 3. Press TRUNK (each time) to select the ID list (0-4). 4. Select the ID# (0-29) by pressing up.jpg or dn.jpg (or press and hold; faster) then press L/OUT to lock or unlock the ID. An L will appear to the right of the ID# if the ID is locked out. 5. Press MAN to exit programming. To Unlock IDs in a bank: 1. In Manual mode select any channel of the bank you want to view the locked out IDs in by entering the bank number and channel number (Ex: 001) then press MAN to advance to the channel. 2. Press PGM then TRUNK to put the scanner in program and trunk modes. You will see the ID list. 3. Press FUNC then L/OUT (each time) to view the locked IDs. Press L/OUT to unlock the ID. The next locked out ID will appear. 4. Press MAN to exit programming. Note: You cannot unlock all IDs at one time.
